So from the recent release my understanding is that dual-motor are not yet (if ever be) available for standard battery (220mi range) Model 3 correct?
We know this one's incorrect. Somebody that's been keeping current should probably update the new knowns on wikipedia.$70,500 USD (approx.)
No. I want LR with AWD.I want a SR Model 3 with AWD and so does everyone else.
No. I want LR with AWD.
I understand it's more than 20% more expensive. I realize that not everyone can afford that, and that even for people who can afford it, they don't need the extra range and thus don't find $9k to be worth it for something they won't use.That car is only 40,000 vs 49,000 before taxes.
Huge difference in price. I can’t afford it but 40k is a toy or extra car for some people in the community.

You just made it sound like your needs/wants and everyone else's are the same. They're not. I do not want standard range. This vehicle is going to be my daily commuter but also my road trip vehicle. I do not want to spend another road trip in my wife's Prius. And I would be in danger of that with only 220 miles of range. If Tesla offered a 400-mile version (Extended Long Range), I would be tempted to get it, depending on extra cost.
Well, Tesla probably has the best knowledge of what kinds of configurations people are waiting for, since they have information from people who have been invited and from people who just have a reservation but no invite. But they've not said anything to the public, so your opinion on what people want and my opinion are just our best guesses. You may be right, and perhaps 50% of the reservation holders out there just want SR. Maybe it's 80%. I'm only commenting that it seems highly unlikely that "everyone" (or even almost everyone) wants AWD SR.I’m bullish TSLA on my option trades. I have to hope I am able to read the consumers well enough as a whole.
